Girl Stories: Agnes Tells Her Story from Rwanda

Today is the International Day of the Girl. We're publishing several stories directly from girls in sub-Saharan Africa today because they tell their stories best.

Earlier this year we embarked on a digital storytelling project with girls in Rwanda. The project was possible thanks to funding from the Nike Foundation and the Girl Effect. Read more about the project in Proving the Tools and Space for Girls to Tell Their own Story

This story is from Agnes. A strong young woman capable of remarkable things.



Join us for International Day of the Girl. We'll be bringing you girls' stories all day long. Stories that you can share with others and bring attention to the exciting opportunities around the world that are helping girls to expand their skills and change their future.

Let's show girls the global community behind them!
